PROFESSOR共に考え、行動する先生たち

私たちは先祖から地球を受け継いだのではなく、子孫に借りているのだ 「We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children」

I grew up in Calgary, Alberta exploring the beautiful Canadian wilderness with my family. I learned that nature is incredibly beautiful and important to our wellbeing. Later, I went on to study Philosophy at the University of Calgary in Canada, Language Education at Bilkent University in Turkey, and, most recently, Global Environmental Studies at Kyoto University in Japan. I now use Language Education as a doorway to understand the environment around us.

All of us have learned about the environment in school, but few people have thought deeply about our connections to it. For example, here are the kinds of questions we will explore in my courses:
• What are some environmental issues that Japan currently faces and how can you help solve them?
• How will climate change affect our children’s lives in the future and what can we do to solve this issue now?
• How can an understanding of different languages and cultures help to solve global issues through cross-cultural understandings and shared beliefs?

I believe that university life is a great opportunity to challenge yourself and learn new things. I want to inspire you to think critically and creatively about the environment and your role in it. In addition, students that take my classes improve their English confidence and fluency, and you can too. I look forward to meeting you and learning with you at Konan University!
